Record and View Your Session

On ClassDo, you can record live collaboration sessions for future review and revision. The recorded sessions are saved to the cloud with unlimited data storage and no expiry date, and you can download them to review your sessions any time, anywhere.

Note that by default, only owners, admins and members with certain roles have the ability to record sessions and download videos. You can change whether certain members can record by either changing their roles, editing role permissions or creating a custom role with recording permissions.

After recording, the video will be stored in the room under the Content tab, where anyone in the room may view it. There is no limit nor expiry date to how long files and videos can be saved in the virtual room.

Note: Recording of the session is only possible in Live Collaboration Mode.


Switch On Recording

Note: If you intend to record your session, it is advised to start the recording at the start instead of in the middle of the session, as the preparation of recording takes around 5 minutes.

Inside the virtual room, click Tools at the top.

In the Recording column, click the slider to switch on this function.

Once you have switched on the Recording function, the system will take 5 minutes to prepare for recording, which is shown by the yellow message.

When the system is ready and starts recording, the yellow message will disappear and be replaced by the red message "Recording".


End the Recording

To end the recording, simply click the slider again to switch off the function.

Download Recorded Videos

To watch the recorded videos, click Show Recorded Videos. The videos can be shown and downloaded regardless of whether the Recording function is switched on or not.

When there is ongoing recording, the status will be NowRecording. You cannot download and watch the video.

When the recording is cancelled before the system finishes preparing for recording, the status will be Cancelled and there will not be any video available.

When the recording has been properly ended, the status will be FinishedRecording.

Click Download to watch the recorded video. The video will be downloaded in mp4 format.


Watch Recorded Video in the Virtual Room

The recorded video will also be stored under the Content tab in the room after recording is finished. Click on the thumbnail to open and watch the video. It is recommended for you to rename the video after recording it.
